Pedological characterization, fertility status and classification of the soils under maize production of Bako Tibe and Toke Kutaye districts of Western Showa, Ethiopia
Maize farm fields were selected in two districts of western Showa, Ethiopia. Four representative maize fields were selected based on landforms and other physiographic attributes in humid highland and sub humid mid altitude areas of Toke Kutaye and Bako Tibe Districts. The objective was to characterize and classify the soils under maize production in Toke Kutaye and Bako Tibe Districts of western Showa, Ethiopia. Four soil profiles were opened and characterized. Pedons are formed under udic and perudic moisture and iso-thermic temperature regimes for both districts.
